Tilda's Valentine Mailbox

Hello, Friends. I’m late getting this posted as I promised yesterday but I had to make some final touches to Tilda's Valentine Mailbox. I fell in love with this paper craft mailbox pattern and bought it a year ago. Now I'm getting around to using it. You can find it at My Time Made Easy. The only modification I made to it for my project was increasing the size by 150%. This post is loaded with photos so you can see it from all angles.
My mini Tilda with Hearts was delivered from Magnolia Sweden last year and now I can use her. She is colored in Copics then cut with a white border so she stands out against the designer paper. She is the perfect size for my mailbox too. I used so many cutting dies and tools for this project and it was so much fun to build.

Supplies I used:  
Happy Mail - My Time Made Easy
Mini Tilda with Hearts – Magnolia
Love Me DPs - My Mind’s Eye
Red Cardstock – The Paper Company
Romantic Lace Border – Magnolia
Heart Swirl – Magnolia
Leaf Die - Magnolia
Doily Flowers – Magnolia
Hearts Embossing Folder - Sizzix
Flowers – Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace – Martha Stewart
Red Stickles – Ranger
Button – JoAnn’s

I’m entering this project in the following challenges.

Magnolia-licious Challenge – Photo Inspiration
Magnolia-licious Highlites – Sweet Crazy Love
Simply Magnolia – Anything but a card
The Pink Elephant – Photo Inspiration
Heart Song Inspirations – Red, White and/or ribbon
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Just Magnolia – Window or Door on your project

Thanks for looking…Leave me a comment; I’d love to hear what you think.
